CBS President Les Moonves, speaking about the fake document fiasco.

“We are risk-taking,” he told NEWSWEEK. “When you extend yourself, it sometimes becomes controversy.”

Ah, so chucking journalistic ethics out the window, all while strongly saying that you do have them, is just a “controversy”.

He emphasized that the current “60 Minutes” crisis is profoundly different from other episodes. “Clearly errors were made,” he says. “But that doesn’t reflect the history or integrity of CBS News.”

Well, what errors, exactly? The best Rather will say is that he can’t be sure the documents are real, in spite of the preponderance of evidence against them.

Euphamism-mania has gripped a network news organization that supposedly calls ’em as they see ’em.
